perks working at a boardinG school

There are many perks when working at a boarding school. These are just some out of many:

  • School Trips (Most if not all boarding schools pay for staff to chaperone on school trips. (e.g. free admissions to Disney World, Paintball, Camping, Travel to a Foreign Country, etc.)

  • Free Lunch (Several schools want staff to be involved in every aspect of the boarding school community), so lunch is on them.

  • Great Benefits (Health, retirement, life insurance, etc.)

  • Free Room and Board (Yes! you read correctly. See below how this is a HUGE PLUS!)

REMEMBER THAT WORKING WITH STUDENTS AND SEEING THEM BECOME SUCCESSFUL GLOBAL LEADERS IS PRICELESS!

Many boarding schools offer their staff room and board as part of their employment. These positions are offered but are not limited to: Dorm Parents, Faculty, Maintenance Personnel, Administration, etc.)

While the figures below varies in many ways it's an example on the average costs of living in the USA and how you benefit if you were working and living at a boarding school in the US.
